Is the glove box up high on the dash? As in exposed to heat from the sun through the front window?

If so it could be warping or perhaps even a adhesive letting go from heat.

Some European car manufactures tent to overlook there are other country's that have intense sun with little cloud cover filtration and hot ambient temperatures. Though I thought that kind of nonsense was ironed out years ago.

It is a very attractive looking interior. I hope they sort it out for you without a fuss.

If it turns out to be heat related and they do replace it. It might pay to place a towel or something over it if and when the car is parked in the sun to avoid it happening again.
